Symphonie Fantastique

Format: LP

Beethoven had just finished writing his symphonies when – in 1830 – a young Frenchman created a sensation with his completely novel and exuberant orchestral music. Based on classical music form, Berlioz composed his massive instrumental composition as a five-movement musical drama. Such a stroke of genius, in which the ego and grief thereof are described, had never been heard before in the French Romantic period.

Format: CD
List Price: (A20) $20.98 

Geraldo was one of the major players amongst the dance band fraternity during the nineteen thirties and forties. His approach was always meticulous, suave, polished and personal. He was always immaculately dressed and presented a smooth image to the world. During WWII he and his orchestra emulated that of Glenn Miller taking to the road to entertain the troops at home and abroad where he established an enormous following and much goodwill. His orchestra was always popular and attracted the best musicians even employing one of Glenn Miller’s best arrangers Bill Finegan. His vocalists were always of the highest quality, they included Dick James who founded Dick James Music and issued the early Elton John records such as the classic album “Yellow Brick Road”, Carole Carr, Sally Douglas, Beryl Davis and Denny Vaughan. Geraldo died of a heart attack while on holiday in Vevey, Switzerland on May the 4th 1974, but his music lives on, as this CD “Seems Like Old Times” testifies.

List Price: (A20) $20.98 

Herman’s bands were always characterized by their rhythmic drive and intensity and by the enthusiasm of the players. In Herman’s autobiography, jazz critic Gene Lees is quoted as saying that “Woody had an astonishing capacity to spot talent before it was particularly obvious to anybody else... the list of careers that he either made or advanced is staggering.” Herman’s personnel lineup over the years reads like an index to jazz, including such notables as sax players Stan Getz, Zoot Sims, and Flip Phillips; trumpeters Shorty Rogers, Pete and Conte Candoli, and Sonny Berman; trombonists Bill Watrous, Jim Pugh, and Bill Harris; pianists Ralph Burns and Jimmy Rowles and the quality of the artists on this CD is very representative of his approach to picking top flight musicians. Woody Herman died of congestive heart failure, emphysema, and pneumonia, on October the 29th 1987, in Los Angeles, CA.

Aerial Ballet
Release Date: 5/19/2017
Format: LP
List Price: (B44) $44.98 

The American singer-songwriter might well share his reputation as a multitalented eccentric with a number of other musicians. However, his highly unusual style and his satirical catchy pop songs composed with the sparkling eye of a cynic and the tearful eye of a nostalgic cannot be pigeonholed. Nilsson packaged derisive lines, spiced with a pinch of self-irony, in suspiciously pleasing yet carefully selected tunes. Several of the wonderfully fresh numbers from "Aerial Ballet" reached top places in the charts. "Everybody’s Talkin’" became world-famous through its use in the film "Asphalt Cowboy" and brought Nilsson his first Grammy award. The song "One" soared to the top ten of the charts.

Title:
The Stars Of Modern
Release Date: 4/7/2017
Format: 7
List Price: (B21) $21.98 

The fifth in our series of "The Stars Of...." EPs is drawn from the catalogue of Modern Records, UK Kent's starting point. Of the earlier editions in the series, only "The Stars Of Mirwood" is still available - these limited editions sell out quickly, so don't delay. Jackie Day's 'Before It's Too Late' and Vernon Garrett's 'If I Could Turn Back The Hands Of Time' earned UK releases in the 60s and became early soul scene classics for British fans.
